Playing around with blog layouts is addictive. Just added some new sidebar features--a list of categories and an amazon favorites list widget. The latter means I have now entered the dark side of "selling out" by allowing my blog to be used for advertising, but I realized one of my favorite features of other blogs is the way they connect me with books, music, and other material I would enjoy but might not hear about otherwise. So the favorites widget seems like an easy way to organize and share that information. I seriously doubt the four people who read this blog regularly will ever lead to the widget generating any income, but if it does, I promise to use my earnings to take you all out for ice cream.
How do things look from your side of the screen? Anything seem off-balance? Too cluttered? I'm open to suggestions! Also, I think it's about time for a new banner, but the nest-and-eggs look so springlike, I'm going to keep them up there at least for a while. ah, spring.
